Currently, I'm using Windows 7 and have no problems in gaming whatsoever. I want more opinions from you guys.

I'd say stick to windows 7, unless you want to play project spark which is only on windows 8 and completely free

Doesn't 8 have less overhead?

If you already have 7 stay with 7. If you're building a new computer go with 8

Stay with 7 especially if you plan on playing older games.

Windows 8's advantages are more obvious with system startup and bells and whistles like a far better task manager. There's really no reason to get Windows 8 (except for exclusives as the above person said) if you have Windows 7. If it were $30 like at release maybe, but that's not true anymore.

No, 8 actually has more.
But they improved other things that overall bought it a couple fps at the top.
